"Chemistry", the new mini-album by Trouble Maker - a duo comprised of HyunA of the girl group 4Minute and Hyunseung of the boy group Beast - is getting quite a reaction, topping the local music charts yesterday almost instantly after its midnight release.
All five songs are doing well, led by the first single "There Is No Tomorrow (Now)". The provocative music video, which features HyunA and Hyunseung in a turbulent relationship in a trailer, with plenty of kissing, drinking, fighting and skin, racked up more than 1.5 million Youtube videos as of press time yesterday.
"There Is No Tomorrow (Now)" was composed by the popular Korean producer Shinsadong Tiger, who was also responsible for the duo's big hit "Trouble Maker" in 2011.
In the unisex world of K-pop, a boy-girl duo like Trouble Maker is uncommon, presenting a style that is edgier than usual
Beast’s comeback is probably one of the most anticipated, if not the most, in recent months. With such expectations behind Beast, there is usually a inclination to make a statement or to try to revive the magic of a previous work. In Beast’s case, the obvious path would be to resurrect Fiction within Hard To Love, How To Love (henceforth known as Hard To Love). Thankfully it remains an empty worry, as like with Midnight Sun, the group avoids this album destroying bullet in their newest release with finesse. The group also, in an interesting move, leaves grandiosity behind to set the modus operandi of Hard To Love in the beauty of moderation.
The only thing that could be considered shocking about Hard To Love is how much of an overt hand Jun-hyung has had in this LP

Beast’s comeback is a month away, but the anticipation is already in high gear. It’s been almost a year since Midnight Sun, which seems both torturously long and right-on-point for an established group like Beast. So while we wait this one last agonizing month, let’s take a moment to reflect on why people go crazy anytime these boys have a comeback.
It’s difficult to imagine a time when Beast were rookies, but it’s important to remember that the group is only three-and-a-half years old. However, what makes their career fascinating is the ridiculously short amount of time it took for them to shed their rookie image. By December 2010, one year and two months after their debut, Beast had released five mini-albums, were the only rookies to sell over 100,000 of said albums (combined), and held a solo concert — and they did it at a time when such rapid advancement was just plain weird
